Safe Water Use on Tonle Sap Lake

PR, Newsletter or Other

This educational video aims to raise awareness and provide school children and local people living on and around Tonle Sap Lake with a better understanding on how to protect their health through simple actions such as proper handwashing with soap, and describes how to treat water for daily use (e.g. cooking, drinking, washing raw food, and bathing). The video has been developed under a project entitled: "Establishment of Environmental Conservation Platform of Tonle Sap Lake," which aims to: (i) promote a better understanding on the recent environmental changes in Tonle Sap Lake and its impacts on local people and their livelihoods, and (ii) identify necessary countermeasures to address these problems. This project is funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), under the Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development (SATREPS - JICA/JST Grant number JPMJSA1503).
